Subject: End of yet another good run during first post-hiatus tour
'76 has a few hot tours - enough that it's tough to pick the ultimate show. But this is certainly a candidate. There's a lot here to discover. There were supposed to be shows in Pittsburgh but those had just been cancelled, making this the end of the tour. Maybe that's why they made this such an exclamation point.
First Set. Tennessee as the opener? It's a weird, downtempo version, so it takes a bit to reveal its magic. You have to adjust to the funk of it. Peggy-O is likewise played slow but not as successfully. The rest is consistently above average with some very good moments. Mission is the final version, and the best version. The one-two closing punch is gobsmacking.
Second Set. Simply one of the best of '76. After a perfect Playin' and its jam comes an intriguing version of Wheel (begins with drummers launching NFA and is officially released). St Stephen had just been resurrected in Boston, with a funky relaxed groove to give Jer some canvas. But this was the first they smoked it out like this. The only perplexing point of the whole show is the blown encore. Either they cooled off too far or certain people imbibed (erm, both)? The only one keeping it from being an A+ set.
1st Set: B+
2nd Set: A
Overall: 5 stars
Tennessee Jed - settled down tempo still flips aces
Mission in the Rain - last of five ever & best
Brown-Eyed Women - brisk & perfect
Music Never Stopped - this is just fire
Might as Well - so nailed
Entire Second Set - must-hear, sans encore, but especially:
Playing in the Band - rarely has this type of energy, jam is kewl
St Stephen - one of best of period, ranks with 6/9/77
Not Fade Away - Perfect segues, tightness
One More Saturday - Takes a lot for one of these to stand out
SOURCES: Sometimes Berthas are a bit too colored, but this source is just right. There is an improved C. Miller version that's as good (139633_sbd_betty), and a wonderful MTX (seamons_112458). The 149860_BettyBoard is a new transfer of an FM broadcast. We are lucky to have such a pristine copy of this show. The Wheel is on So Many Roads.

Second set, too, is must-listen. It's separated into thirds, curiously punctuated by tuning breaks: Samson, Candyman to start (15 mins); pitb->space jam->the wheel->pitb reprise (33 mins anchoring the set); then st stephen->nfa->st stephen->sat night to close (26 mins). US Blues encore.
*This fantastic wheel, as noted by others, is featured on So Many Roads, Disc 3.

AFTER LISTENING TO THIS SHOW
FROM START TO FINISH---Excellent Sound !!!!!
Wish every recording this enjoyable.
Reviews are helpful :)
But you got listen to this one
with as little distractions
as humanly possible.
The BEE'S KNEES.
Subject: Sloooow but good
To each his own though. I happen to enjoy the laid-back, mellow feel of these June shows, and the sound quality of the boards makes them hard to overlook. The slow jams that resulted in this tempo downshift can be really inspiring.
Subject: Does anyone else...
And I can't possibly like this version of Mission better than just about any JGB version of note. The St. Stephen plods along so slow you feel as if the band may nod off. Playin actually just put me to sleep at my desk...
Like I said, I'm biased to the latter part of the year in terms of style. And though I enjoy the band taking their time and searching for the sound, I personally can't listen to perhaps some of the slowest playing I've ever heard in GD history! 3 stars
Subject: great 76 chilled sound
this is what i would show someone to show them the grateful dead's playing style

Subject: First Set
I'd like to know if there are any bands out there 34 years later who could make half as good a noise live. I bet you there aren't many if any.
Love you Jerr....
Subject: Best of '76?
This has very tight playing and yet very exploratory, especially for '76. One of the best, most tripped-out post-'74 Playin's, into what could be the definitive version of The Wheel. Also, I'd put this St.Stephen>NFA>St.Stephen against 5/8/77's any day of the week. In fact, I'd put this entire show up against the best '77's, and it would do more than hold it's own.
After a somewhat average 1st set, with the exception of a few songs, such as beautiful renditions of Mission and Row Jimmy, the rest of the show is straight up intense. Out of the several hundred shows I own and hundreds more I've streamed, from all eras of the Dead, this one's in my top 20, no question. And I'm not really a '76 guy, although I'm starting to appreciate it more, as these '76 shows have more of that spring '77 vibe than the Oct-Nov '77 shows do, imo.
They had a handful of really good shows this year. This one's a great one.
As always, pristine sound, Mr. Ashley(and of course Ms. Cantor!)
